New Economic Frontier says they have collected the 15,582 signatures necessary to place their legalization initiative on the presidential election ballot this November. However, the group will continue to gather signatures until the July 8 deadline in case some of the signatures are invalid (for example, any duplicate signatures or signatures from non-registered voters will be thrown out).

The group gathered over 15,000 signatures in less than two months, with the Secretary of State approving the initiative in late April.

The proposed initiative would allow those 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana, four grams of marijuana concentrates, and 1,500 milligrams of adult-use cannabinoid products (300 milligrams of which can be in the form of edible products). The initiative would also permit the personal cultivation of up to three marijuana plants and the purchase of marijuana and marijuana products through licensed marijuana stores.

If New Economic Frontier is successful in getting its initiative on this November’s ballot, North Dakota will join Florida and South Dakota as states voting this year on recreational marijuana initiatives. You can read the full text of the initiative by clicking here.
